Im 61 years old and never met Izzy. I cant even remember seeing him perform back in the day. I became a Facebook Friend when I enquired, for a friend, about getting a couple of Zarzoff CDs which Izzy promptly delivered (without postage costs). When I saw Lynnes post from the local paper and I realised Izzy was gone, I was shattered. & I have never met him. Still upsets me…!
Lynne I couldn’t make it on Saturday but I dragged me butt down to the Annandale Hotel , the last place I saw Izzy Foreal perform to have a beer, close my eyes and try to remember good times…. And bugger me when I opened em again I saw another guy who I remember from a few inner sydney pubs who was doing tha same…. We chatted for an hour or so about some of the pubs we saw the Zarsoffs at…..I wonder how many pubs did this same thing occur….?
Have struggled with what to write for days now. I didn’t know him as Izzy Foreal, I knew him as Peter, my colleague and an intelligent guy with a great sense of humour. He encouraged me to fight for what was right and make the wrongs known in the world. I am very sad for his family and friends who have a massive hole in their lives and hearts. He truly was an incredible person. Thank you Peter for being you and caring about everyone you knew. I am forever grateful that I had you on my side
Hey Iz, you left and you took a whole lot of fun and love and laughter with you! It’s going to take us a long time to get over that.
